The new extension has done wonders for River Heart. Lots of water fun for kids of all ages, as well as BBQs, toilets and adequate seating. Great track for running or walking along the river. Deserves to have more events.

The visitors were amazed at the beauty of the river art in the water. The empty Fertaliser bins, blue caustic soda drums, tyre or ten, Trees in the water. and they wanted to light the gas smell from the water / mud / pollution.
